Securing the edge: Cyber Physical Systems Security

June 4 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm BST

Join us on June 4th as we explore the techniques needed to secure the cyber physical systems of the future, whether it be for smart cities and infrastructure, or IoT jet engines.

Cyber physical systems (CPS) are typically distributed, complex and have safety impacts in the real world. Such systems have the potential to make life easier for their users and generate new revenue streams for their operators. However, the rise of cyber physical systems and IoT devices in general poses a threat to the safety, security, and privacy of the public. To compound the issues around system complexity, CPS are characterised by low compute power at the edge and complex supply chains. In this event we will explore the techniques needed to secure the CPS of the future, whether it be for smart cities and infrastructure, or IoT jet engines.

15:15 – Is autonomous cyber-defence for operational technology possible?

Speaker: Madeline Cheah, Cybersecurity specialist, Cambridge Consultants
Autonomous cyber-defence is desirable but challenging, particularly for operation situations and technology. This is because of the need to consider safety, different lifecycles, heterogeneity, opacity and the multiple contexts in which such technology functions. We explore in this talk the difficulties, the extent to which research efforts have addressed these challenges and the potential advantages for autonomous cyber-defence in different situations. We envisage such a talk will be useful to practitioners and researchers looking to develop autonomous cyber-defence.

15:40 – Cyber Physical Systems Security: Expert Panel Discussion

Chair:  Bob Oates, Associate Director, Cambridge Consultants
This talk provides a modular approach for industrial cybersecurity, allowing security leaders to tailor their strategy based on their industry and business context.
